Master Collection Resolution Clarified Yet Again

Konami Clarifies Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection Vol. 1 Resolution Again

Konami has once again clarified the resolution details for Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection Vol. 1, this time by providing a chart on its website. Previous statements from the company have caused some confusion and frustration among players.

Initial Misleading Statement

During a Nintendo preview event, Konami initially stated that MGS 2 and 3 in the Master Collection would support 720p resolution since they are ports of the PS3’s HD Collection. On the other hand, MGS 1 would maintain its original PS1 resolution. However, Konami later released an official statement, stating that the collection would aim for 60 fps on all platforms except the Switch. This, unfortunately, turned out to be inaccurate.

New Resolution Details

Konami’s newly published chart reveals that MGS 1 will be locked to 30 fps on all platforms. Additionally, the game will only support 1080p resolution across all platforms (except for the Switch in handheld mode, where it will be limited to 720p). It’s important to note that 4K support will not be available.

These announcements have left fans feeling disappointed. However, it is hoped that this latest clarification will settle the matter once and for all.

Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection Vol. 1 is set to release on October 24.
